Day Six

I read my first Dean Koontz book when I was in middle school. I instantly fell in love with his ability to write about evil without destroying hope. 

In the years since that trip through The Funhouse, I have relished each and every moment spent inside the pages of his books. Everything he has published can be found here. I have read them all. I lived the stories with the characters. Their journeys became mine. 

I want to write like that. I want to write something that allows the reader to suspend all disbelief and become a part of the story . . . and when the final page is read, I want the reader to close the book and feel as if he's saying goodbye to a friend. -- 

Until tomorrow.
